After their amazing success at The International 4, Newbee's performance graph registered a sharp downwards trajectory and no other Aegis holding team faded as fast as they did in 2015. In all fairness, they did lose two of their key members, Hao and xiao8, and that left a clear mark on their record for this competitive year. It remains to be seen if their new roster is capable of defending the title and even though they aren't credited with many chances to do so, they have the last year's experience to draw from, when they got nearly eliminated in the group stage only to pull through with unbelievable performances in the main event.
In the recent 6.84 patch Newbee have poor results and they only showed up for three major tournaments. They got knocked out from G-league in the first round, at Mars TV they were eliminated in the group stages and their only notable achievement was registered in i-League where they defeated Invictus Gaming twice an Team Malaysia (Fnatic) once and finished on 4th position.
With Dragon Knight and Gyrocopter as the most picked heroes in these three tournaments, Newbee are adjusting to the latest patch trend which implies early map control by taking fast tier one towers, get easier access to the enemy jungle and create space for your carry to safe farm. Their priority is to ensure Mu’s dominance in the midlane, therefore, in the banning phase they target Viper, Lina and Queen of Pain, well known for their disruptive laning presence while they rely on very aggressive and ganking oriented supports like Lion and Earthsaker.

Everyone knows that Na’Vi are three times TI finalists, a performance that no other team managed to achieve yet. Even so, TI4 marked the beginning of a cloudy season and their free falling into DotA’s purgatory. But Artsyle’s comeback coupled with the acquisition of SoNNeikO, an astonishing talented playmaking support from Power Rangers, proved to be the winning moves and the new Na’Vi roster seems to have finally found the good balance between raw talent and a leader who can command respect from his team mates and can make them work together to restore their former glory.
